Terrific Tarpon Fishing

Fantastic guide and tarpon fishing experience. Highly recommended. The conditions elsewhere were wavy due to approaching tropical storm Fiona, but the backwater was smooth.
Amazing Fishing

My girlfriend and I were on vacation from Jacksonville, Florida. We went out with Capt. Clery and we had an Epic day! I caught a monster Tarpon over 100lbs and she landed her first Tarpon as well. Hooked up multiple more times. I highly recommend Backwater Tarpon Fishing Charters! We will definitely be back.
Amazing experience

Not very impressive

It was great to be out on the water. We didn’t get a chance to even cast a line as the boat guide trolled and cast all the lines. We touch the fishing rod twice. Unfortunately didn’t catch anything the entire time. Not very impressed by the service provided.
